Development edit As Neptune and Odyssey edit In the late s, initial development of what would become Windows XP was focused on two individual products; Odyssey, which was reportedly intended to succeed the future Windows , and Neptune, which was intended to succeed the MS-DOS-based Windows 98 with a Windows NT-based product designed for consumers. Based on s NT 5. A number of activity centers were planned, serving as hubs for communications i. A single build of Neptune, which was otherwise based on, and still carried the branding of Windows in places, revealed early work on the activity center concept, with an updated user account interface and graphical login screen, common functions such as recently used programs being accessible from a customizable Starting Places page which could be used as either a separate window, or a full-screen desktop replacement. Microsoft also planned to push back Neptune in favor of an interim, but consumer-oriented NT-based OS codenamed Asteroid. Concepts introduced by Neptune would influence future Windows products; in Windows ME, the activity center concept was used for System Restore and Help and Support which both combined Win32 code with an interface rendered using Internet Explorer s layout engine, the hub concept would be expanded on Windows Phone, and Windows 8 would similarly use a simplified user interface running atop the existing Windows shell. Neptune became a black hole when all the features that were cut from Windows ME were simply re-tagged as Neptune features. And since Neptune and Odyssey would be based on the same code-base anyway, it made sense to combine them into a single project.
